Based on the classic children's novel by John Bellairs, the story follows 10-year-old Lewis (Owen Vaccaro), who is sent to live with his weird uncle (Black) in a quiet town.

However, upon arriving at his uncle's creepy, old AF house, it's revealed that everything in the silent suburb is NOT as innocent as it appears.

Also, Cate Blanchett is in it, so...just take all of my money now, K thanks.

The trailer throws off major Are You Afraid of the Dark?–meets–Casper '90s pop culture vibes, which I'm here for all day long.

And, in the plot twist of the century, the film was directed by Eli Roth...yes, Cabin Fever, Hostel, The Green Inferno, horror/gore master Eli Roth, so I'mma need to see this, like, right now.

But (unfortunately) we'll all have to wait to see what's ~tickin'~ until Sept. 21!
